A sequel to the marvelous earlier "Marvels", which retells many of the major events in the Marvel universe through the eyes of Philip Sheldon, a freelance photographer who recorded many of those events, and became part of some of them. This book continues that storyline, with a recurring theme about humanity alternately cheering and fearing the Marvels. The most compelling part of the book comes near the end, with the return of Maggie, the little mutant girl (now grown) whom Phil and his family sheltered during the height of the anti-mutant hysteria in the first book. Not as groundbreaking as the first book, and the artwork does not rise to the level of Alex Ross' (Hell, whose does?) - but this is a good, moving story told through the eyes of an ordinary decent man, a rare thing in the Marvel universe.
